Are there drawbacks for requesting that the door (panel I assume) be replaced? Are the parts even available yet?
If the damage did not get into the body lines, which it dont look that way, i would try a dentless paint removal company, they have done wonderful thing on cars i thought would have to be painted or body work on, dont hurt to have one of them look at it first, that way no paint is done to car at all....looks like a shallow dent that could be removed...
